Weekend MMA Recap: Parsons’ KO win at Bellator 117 highlights successful weekend

Easter weekend was a busy one for mixed martial arts around the country, with events in nearly every region highlighting the action. Intimidation was part of at least three events, including two in the Buckeye state and one in Michigan. Also one of the longest-running members of Team Intimidation picked up the biggest win of his career.

Jordan Parsons - Bellator MMA Longtime Minnesota MMA product Jordan Parsons (10-1, 1-0 BMMA) finally made his Bellator MMA debut on Friday night, and the “Pretty Boy” impressed with a knockout just 4 seconds into the second round. After a dominant first round, Parsons (pictured, right) needed just two punches in the second frame: a left and then a straight right, and Bazer was knocked out cold. Parsons is now on a three-fight winning streak since losing the only bout of his career and joins a long list of Intimidation sponsored fighters with highlight reel KOs for Bellator & other top MMA organizations.

Intimidation was also active at three events in the Midwest. The Intimidation crew was live on hand at EFP: Caged Madness 28 in Akron, Ohio, where a packed crowd witnessed a deep amateur card featuring a full slate of bouts. Multiple fighters from the Intimidation sponsored Evolve MMA gym were in action, including Izzy William (6-2) who picked up a submission victory in the second round, and Ryan Arce (5-2) made his return to the cage to earn a decision victory.

And in Fredericktown, Ohio, a sold out crowd at EAC 6 witnessed the final show from the organization, and the Intimidation Clothing bumper pads were up in the red and blue corners. And finally, the Intimidation Michigan crew had a fantastic night at the Mad Men Promotions “Night of Champions” event in Hillsdale, MI on Saturday night.
